Cofano is decidedly Pugliese, it is very widespread in Fasano in Brindisi, but it has significant presences, even if much less incident, in the Taranto area in Grottaglie, Taranto, Massafra and Martina Franca, in Sant'Eramo in Colle and Monopoli in the Bari area and in San Pietro in Lama in the Lecce area, with a small stock in Rome, the origin could be from a Greek nickname originated from the ancient Greek word ?????? kufon (light, empty), or it could also be an Italianization of the Norman name Koffen.
